Video: ‘Proving’ Research

Video Synopsis

  • Jeremy Sherr has been a homeopath for 33 years.
  • He is also an author, researcher and a homeopathic teacher with a postgraduate course that has been running since 1987.
  • One of Sherr’s main areas of interest is that of homeopathic provings, which involves discovering the nature of homeopathic remedies – new and old.
  • He experiments on healthy volunteers to uncover the symptoms a remedy causes because, based on the principle of ‘like cures like’, what a remedy causes it can also cure.
  • The volunteers, usually numbering 10-20, take the remedy in a double-blind placebo-controlled experiment (Sherr usually takes the remedy as well) and then they observe the range of physical and mental-emotional symptoms that develop.
  • These symptoms are then collated into a ‘picture’ to understand what that remedy can achieve in clinical practice.
  • Sherr has proved 35 remedies, from animals, to the elements, noble gases, and many more.
  • He has also conducted research to see if the symptoms of old provings can still be validated, today.
